really curious how much our overlords are earning.
In terms of basic is about the same. A principal in a mid size PE firm would be drawing around 300-500k basic depending on the individual.

But generally PE bonus tend to be much more erratic than IB. In PE there will be dry years where bonuses will be mediocre at 6-10 months. The catch is that if you are the principal that is in charge of a certain gestation investment which leads to a good trade sale or IPO, the carried interest and co-investment payouts can run into multi million dollars in payouts.
